Wanted this to be a five star
Faith #1 Retailer Exclusive Cover by Stephanie Hans, Source Comics and Games - Jody Houser,Stephanie Hans

I'd heard great things about this series, or at least the mini-series before this, by the same author.  So, needless to say I was psyched to see it in my grab bag.   Except that Faith didn't work for me solo.   Oh, she did on a lot of levels: she's relentlessly cheery, as I've accused of being, so I think part of this was too much of me seeing me in her.   It turns out too much of me, too much of that relentless cheeriness, annoys me, too.   Go figure.  I'll try to be just a shade darker, immediate world, to balance that out and be less relentlessly annoying. 

 

I also didn't really care about Faith's life, gaming and even writing for a website.  I wanted to see more action.   Part of what was great about Faith in a team is that action was foisted upon her, and here not so much. 

 

On the other hand, it was a pretty cool storyline, Faith has a really good life - if not something I find incredibly compelling as reading material - and I got super interested in the twist at the end.   Which was twisted.  I also relate to Faith and her continuing fangirling, so it was nice to see someone nerdy in the same way I am in comics. 

 

I'd be willing to give this another issue, but if the focus is as intensely on Faith's person life as issue two, I'll probably drop this series.  I read comics for action, and so much like Cavalier and Klay - perfect book for me on first glance - I don't really want to read the behind the scenes, all the details about a personal life.  I want the soap opera dramatics, and super powered fights.   I want it all. 

 

Work the personal life around that, and I'm a happy camper.   I think Faith could easily find this balance, but this first issue makes me wonder if it will because I felt it was completely disproportionately skewed towards the personal life.

After five years of reporting in war-torn Syria, Troy Young is back in his hometown of San Diego. Readjusting to life back home is proving difficult. He keeps having panic attacks during live shots. But he s given one more chance as an entertainment reporter doing a He Said, She Said review segment. It s not what Troy had in mind especially when he discovers who his new partner is.

Movie-obsessed Sarah Martin loves her new gig at News 9...until the man who broke her heart enters the studio. Still, the desire between Sarah and Troy has not subsided even if he did pick his career over her. She doesn't want to trust him again but they ll need to overcome their off screen tension if they hope to handle the drama that s about to unfold...

 

 

 

 

 

There's a lot I really loved about At First Light, there's a lot that kept me from liking as much as I was wanting to however I still thought it was really great.

The idea was good but the added mystery spin on it all could have been done without because we (the reader) already had so much going on with the ptsd angle and the added backstory that I don't really think the extra adventure was really necessary.

It didn't really provide good flow with the organic feel of the over all story.

That aside I did like our h/h, I thought they were great together, I enjoyed the way they played off one another which kind of had An Ugly Truth kind of feel to it which is always fun. 

Overall I pretty much enjoyed At First Light from beginning to end.

 

 

 

Until next time book lovers...
